pink mercury glass

When I think of mercury glass, I see the dark gray vases and bottles that seem to line every flea market tabletop these days. I’ve got nothing against that glassy gray, but this pink mercury glass certainly takes the cake. I’ve never seen pink mercury glass, so these pieces are a major treat for me. They’ve got a slightly retro feel that would be perfect for baked goods or just serving up something special after dinner. Liberty of London carries this pink mercury glass in both cake stand and fruit bowl form, which are available online right here. xo, grace

    So pretty. What a nice way to pretty-up your table. :)

    These look very similar to Depression glass… except Depression glass is usually more ornate with the etching patterns.

  3. Oohh – I love pink glass …

  4. So cool – kind of makes me think of a modern twist on antique “cranberry glass”.

  5. I’ve never seen pink mercury glass before either – I like it as a sleeker alternative to the more ornate Depression style pink glass I’ve seen around.

    I have a lovely and random collection of pink mercury glass. My dad buys me a new plate or bowl every year around Valentine’s Day. We see it a lot at antique stores here in Missouri, but the pieces above are so crisp and modern. I love them!
